The Austrians start shelling Belgrade.
Late in the day the German ambassador puts forward the “halt in Belgrade” proposal. The Austro-Hungarian Foreign Minister says Austria is willing to repeat to Russia that it will not annex any part of Serbia but it needs time to consider the “halt in Belgrade” idea.
The Austro-Hungarian Foreign Minister has news of the Russian partial mobilisation. He tells Germany that if the Russian military preparations continue Austria-Hungary will have to declare general mobilisation.
He also says Austria-Hungary will continue military action against Serbia even though there are diplomatic efforts to solve the crisis.
